Mt Bachelor "Travel" Article in the NY Times

Don't expect too much. The mountain is wet,windy and flat. There are few services and a pitiful job market with one of the highest over-priced real estate markets in the nation. Our football team blows and the Jail blazers haven't done anything in years. Oh one more thing,we have awful Beer. Do I sound like an Oregonian.;)

Yup.

that place sucks. Don't even think about trying time skiing a storm cycle there. They might run a couple of the worthless front side lifts during a storm, maybe. For the several days after when the snow begins to get heavy they do "storm recovery" like its some big official deal so basically the better lifts don't open until way after the fact and that's if they can manage to plow their lot,seriously. You might get lucky and catch a bluebird powder day where things align and they manage to open terrain in a timely fashion but you would have to be extremely lucky. Spring and other times i'm sure it rocks

I found the cave once but I'm not sure I could find it again. I did find some big man-made sculpted jumps hidden out in the trees this week -- I'm glad I didn't hit one of them in low visibility though, har.

I have to take issue with your clueless take on storm recovery of higher lifts on volcano's that take the full brunt of pacific storms.

My take: Portland is a really fun city. It's the most similar city to Vancouver I've seen yet.

There's a reason they call it Mt. Flatular. Sure, it gets lots of powder but the powder is too heavy and the runs too flat to enjoy it. You end up spending more time hiking in the powder than skiing it.

I saw lots of that from out-of-towners this week.
